Wife and I split a Caesar Salad for an appetizer, one of the best we have had! She ordered a blackened grouper sandwich with fries, and I ordered a pound of steamed Gulf Shrimp. The grouper was very good, albeit very thin. My shrimp were very hard to peel, and I have peeled thousands, so know when they're done right.... More

My brother said Flippers was one of his favorite places to eat in Orange Beach and now I know why! The food is delicious, the staff is very friendly and accommodating and the view is beautiful!!! And as if that's not enough, they give their customers a little cup of free homemade Vanilla Ice Cream with either fudge sauce or... More

We saw Flippers from a boat trip we took and we lucked out! The waiter was great and offered wonderful suggestions! The coconut shrimp appetizer was gone in seconds when the kids tried and my southwestern grouper was amazing. This was the 1 night in Orange Beach that we did not have leftovers!

While on vacation with my family, my boyfriend and I ended up eating here two of the four days in Gulf Shores. We loved it! We originally decided to go after checking out a wonderful little Visitor/Welcome Center with tons of information brochures and coupons. We checked online and found a (slightly outdated) priced menu that had what we both... More

A great spot known to lots of locals. Good-sized parking area even for small RVs. Full menu from those Royal Reds--deep water shrimp--to the usual fish offerings. Nice spot to relax and watch the sun set.

We really enjoyed Flippers & the tiki bar. Great music, laid back crowd & band was done by 10. Super bartenders were friendly and attentive. I totally recommend the coconut shrimp appetizer with the mango sauce. The shrimp were big and fried just right. We walked back down the pier & went to bed on our sailboat. We hadn't planned...

Nice atmosphere on the water. Indoor or outdoor eating. Upstairs bar. Wonderful seafood, sandwiches, burgers, oysters, shrimp, and crab claws, just to name a few. Very casual relaxing place.

We've eaten here now twice. Both times we've made choices off of the Lunch menu. Both times our food has been excellent. My husband had the fish basket and he loved the flakey white fish and crispy fries. I had the seafood pasta which was loaded with shrimp and scallops in a crawfish sauce over pasta served with garlic bread.Our... More

Ate he Saturday afternoon for the first time and it was impressive. I had the BBQ shrimp appetizer and it was spicy and served with French toast. It was excellent. We had the grilled fish sandwich blackened and the fried fish basket. Both plates were excellent and enjoyed them with a view of the bay. Will eat here again.
